Up for sale is a 95 Chevy 3500 HD flatbed tow truck with the 454 motor. It has a Holmes aluminum bed with the tow bar in the rear for towing an extra vehicle behind the truck. The bed measures from front to back at 19ft. All the lighting on the bed was recently redone and has all new lights and light covers as you can see in the pictures. In this auction will also be included an orange and white Whelen light bar for overhead rotating and strobe lighting. its not pictured on the truck.


It has a strong 454 motor that was rebuilt about a year ago. The transmission on it went out two months ago and it was replaced and the transmission guy added stronger parts and said that this transmission upgrade would make this thing bulletproof and it was ideal for all the power the truck has to exert while towing. It cost me quite a bit more than a regular tranny and it really does tow tons better now. I just put a brand new fuel pump in and the filters were replaced as well. O2 sensors and exhaust were recently replaced as well.

The bed is fully operational and so is the lift. It runs smooth and I have never had a problem with it. I have not had the time to add a master control for all the lights after I started the upgrade on them all. It will need one or you can rig up switches as you please. I also tore out the old throttle lock cable and have not put in a new one yet. Its only 30 for the cable and literally takes 30 minutes to install. It does not affect the functionality of the bed but the high idol allows the bed to move faster as it increases the engines RPM's and pushes the PTO to move faster. The belt on the PTO was just changed. It is coming time to take some preventative maintenance steps and have the PTO serviced and maybe have it rebuilt. I have done this with all my trucks diligently every two years to keep them in top form.This one is about due.

The interior is in good shape with normal wear and tear. My trucks have always been well maintained and serviced. The body of the truck is also in good shape as you can see and the paint job is new as well. It does have AC and it does work but if you know Chevys then you know that between the years of 95 to 01 the switches for the vents that Chevy used on their trucks always had problems. you turn the switch and sometimes you will get air cold enough to blast you out of the truck, other times not so much. That would be the one complaint I have that I never got around to fixing.

It's a good truck and I hate to see it go but I have to make room for new ones. Good luck. You must have feedback to be able to participate in this bid and if you don't plan on buying, then don't place a bid. I have had to re-list too many items previously because people don't want to pay. I reserve the right to end auction early as it is for sale locally as well.

Chevy Corvette gets Valet Mode with Performance Data Recorder [w/video]

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 09:00:00 EST

For the 2015-model-year, Chevrolet introduces Valet Mode for the Corvette, an enhancement to the Performance Data Recorder (PDR) already available and to your peace of mind. The PDR already captures 720p HD video with a windshield-mounted camera, records interior audio with a cabin microphone and gathers telemetry data using GPS, saving the data to an SD card in the glovebox. You can then watch your track-day antics with various information overlays on the center console screen.
Valet Mode will let you hit 'Replay' when your car gets pulled up front smelling vaguely of fricasseed clutch. Turned on by entering a four-digit code, it also locks the interior storage spaces and turns off the infotainment system. It can't be turned off until the code is re-entered. There's a press release below with more information as well as a video that explains how it works, with the obligatory dig at the 'Vette's biggest foe.

GM recalls select Chevy Cruze, Sonic and Buick Verano models over airbag issue

Wed, 14 Nov 2012 15:31:00 EST

General Motors is recalling certain 2012 Buick Verano, Chevrolet Cruze and Sonic models due to a defect in the driver's airbag system. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the airbag has a shorting bar which may contact two internal terminals. If that happens during a crash, the supplemental restraint may not deploy, increasing the risk of driver injury. The recall includes a total of 2,949 units.
GM will contact owners and replace the steering wheel airbag coil at no cost. At this point, it's unclear when the recall will begin, though owners may contact the automaker at 1-800-521-7300 for more information. You may also take a closer look at the full NHTSA notice below.

Joe Flacco wins C7 Corvette along with MVP honors

Mon, 04 Feb 2013 13:30:00 EST

As part of a longstanding tradition, the MVP of Super Bowl XLVII, Joe Flacco, quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens, was given a new car directly after the game and trophy celebrations. For 2013, that car is a 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, and it was presented to Flacco by Rick Flick of Banner Chevrolet, a dealership in New Orleans that was wiped out by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 before returning to prominence as the only Chevy dealer in Orleans Parish.
Last year, Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning took home a 2012 Corvette GS Centennial Edition. Manning also won in 2008, when he selected a Cadillac Escalade Hybrid as his reward. In 2011, quarterback Aaron Rodgers accepted the keys to a Camaro convertible.
Though we're most definitely an auto-obsessed group, we did watch the Big Game along with nearly everyone else in America. And we've gotta say, as if winning the Super Bowl and receiving the Tiffany-designed Pete Rozelle Trophy wasn't enough for the multi-millionaire MVP athletes, a brand-new C7 seems like an awfully generous prize. Scroll down below for an official announcement from General Motors.
